Hello,

I am in need of drivers for a Dell Dimension 8110 tower. This is running XP Home. It is not very old, and using dell's support site I cannot find drivers for this model computer. I have been able to find drivers for most everything, except audio. I still need the audio driver. As I search the internet, I find that lots of folks can't find drivers for this model. If anyone has a clue as to where to get this driver, please let me know.

If I can't find the driver I will just pop in a sound card, but I would rather not.

Thanks so much!

Just out of curiosity, I went to Dell Support, typed in your model number and it showed only 2 audio drivers...One for Sound Blaster Live and the other for Turtle Beach Santa Cruz (special sound card)....Curiosity peaked when I noticed that XP wasn't listed in the drop down box for Operating System...HMMM...I would download SIW and find out exactly what motherboard that I have installed (You are talking about onboard sound, right?) go to their web-site and see if they have what you need for XP...

Usually through Dell Support if you type in the exact service tag number (or even better click on the button to let them find it for you) they should be able to direct you to the proper drivers for your make and model...Not always...But most of the time...Can be a frustrating process at times...
Does this look like an OldGrumpyBastard or what?

Entering the service tag does not get me to the right place. A different model computer appears on the Dell website.

There is simply the stock mobo installed on this computer, and it came with XPH.

I will run Everest and see if that sheds any light.

Do you have the link to the audio drivers you found?

I originally searched Dimension 8100 instead of 8110....Sorry about that...I will give you the link anyway...On one of Dell Support's forum pages it surfaced that there is no such thing as Dimension 8110 but there is a Dimension B110....The links for these are here also...

I guess that's why they call this kind of problem DellHell, is the sound onboard or from a pci card?

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

It is on board sound. And it is definetely a 8110, not a B110.

I appreciate your replies, got to go out of town for a couple of days. Will check back...
